There are lots of other examples...

The Eleven> Cumberland

There are some other near transitions from Dec 1969, but they're more like quick stops.

A couple months later, we've got NFA> Cumberland

And then the classic, Viola Lee> The Seven> Cumberland

Dick's Picks Vol. 8, aka 5/2/70, has Candyman> Cumberland. This was done a few other times, though I don't recall that it was really so much of a transition as kind of a one-two punch.

The 80's brought a lot of Mama Tried> Cumberlands and MAMU> Cumberlands in the "cowboy combo" fashion. I'm not going to post links. There are lots.

There is a really fun combo from 3/9/85 that goes China Cat> Cumberland> Miracle> Eyes

Miracle> Cumberland

There are lots more from the 80s and beyond, but you were focused on pre-hiatus, so there you have it.

Thanks for the Thelma and Fillmore examples, s&r (Cliff beat you to the Capitol Theatre one). Interesting that Jerry starts the transition at the Fillmore show and Phil picks it up. In the Thelma example, Phil starts it, but when Jerry was playing the usual The Eleven riffs about a minute before, a bit of it sounded Cumberlandy enough to me that I could imagine Phil having gotten the idea for the transition from him.
